Many thanks to the learned Eoin C Bairéad for the information that the good people at logainm.ie have scanned many old maps, and other documents, and made them available here, free of charge. They include maps of counties bordering the Shannon, Murdoch Mackenzie’s 1775 chart of the Shannon Estuary (with some soundings) and Mackenzie’s Views of the West Coast of Ireland.
Note: some of the files are very large.

A Google alert came up with this. Clicking on it opens it on a different background; clicking again increases it in size and a third click reduces it again. I can’t do anything else with it and I don’t know who produced it, but maybe others can do more. It’s very elegant anyway.
